Earlier this week, we received some rather unexpected treatment in our email. Christopher Tupa is an artist based in Edna, Texas. Through her watercolors and drawings, Tupa depicts joyful slices of pop culture and her family life, such as their road trip from Texas to California and their visit to Disney World. He is also a writer and has blogged about his family road trip on historic Route 66. One of his most whimsical creations is his book of paintings, each depicting dozens of small toys he has received from vending machines over the years. year.
Sometimes he also illustrates his family’s restaurant visits – and we were completely charmed when he shared his artwork depicting their adventures in Kura Revolving Sushi Bar. All the fun details of her visit to downtown Houston are here: the conveyor belt delivery, the ordering screen, and the irresistible compulsion to order dishes in increments of 15 to activate the whimsical animations and toy drops .
We hope to receive more viewings of Tupa from his restaurant tours in the Greater Houston Area, and you can help keep the art going by supporting Houston Food Finder via Patreon or offering rewards to our readers for their support. (Email us to inquire about this option.) You can also support Tupa’s work directly by visiting his online store, contributing via PayPal to his blog, or checking out his Amazon author page.
